Updates and News

It's been a long time since I blogged about my little girl (actually, since I blogged about anything), and she's grown so much, I don't really know where to start.

Let's see - she's now an active little girl, approaching 15 months, but sometimes behaves older than her years months. She's running all over the place now, sometimes in a really scary way, heedless of all obstacles in her path. She's a little chatterbox too - in addition to the words that she mimics, she can say so many while understanding what they mean. Some favourites are: "go-go" when she wants you to go somewhere, "come", "hug", "food", and my favourite - "ma-bao-nen" - which means "mummy baobao and nen nen (nurse) please"! She recognises people - like when she sees her Nainai, she asks for her Yeye. She sings along with the tv, and knows the actions for many songs, like London Bridge, The Grand Old Duke of York, If You're Happy, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Head and Shoulders, and many more. (So you can imagine how tiring it is when she wants us to go through the whole repertoire!) When we ask her where Jesus is, she points to her chest and says, "Heart!" Oh and our favourite - she dances to the Hot Dog song at the end of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (on the Playhouse Disney Channel)!

It's really a blessing to see her grow each day.

And now, we're expecting blessing No.2! I've been wondering - will this baby be more like me, given that Cherise is so much like Adrian in personality? We bought the Intelligender test, and guess what? Result = Boy! I've got to stop buying pink.

There are going to be a great many changes in the coming months. It isn't easy, being pregnant (tired and pukey) and still having to chase after a little energizer bunny, but it will all be worthwhile in the end, I'm sure.

Hello! Nong time nong time! Sam told me about your first pregnancy, but never got the chance to see you then. And then there were four (Jas, Adrian and 2 mini-yous)?! Congratulations!

I got one coming up as well, just in time for Christmas (fancy that; that old bartender, a father). Now we have one child, cannot imagine what it's going to be like, much less imagining taking care of two! We'll be keeping close watch on your blog for tips and tricks! Hahaha...

Again, congratulations!
